If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

Featuring the lovely model Lydia. Shot spring 2009. (Third in a series.)
I don't generally use a lot of green in my work-- I lean towards black, white, purple, blue, and red a lot more often. In this case, I think the color choice makes the photo, though.
It was Lydia's idea to shoot with a mask, and the concept was really advanced by the excellent work of my MUA, Krystal Gail Makeup FX. I hope I played my part as well.
People seem to enjoy the mystery and allure of this series, somewhere between glamour and fantasy. I also think any photo with a very limited color palette tends to be appreciated a bit more.
